Hi, my name is Ben Hastie.
I'm a visual designer and illustrator living on beautiful Vashon Island, in Seattle's backyard. 
I specialize in email campaigns, digital design and illustration.

I’ve been pixel placing, kerning and image manipulating as a visual designer for 12 years now. I’m a cheerful and passionate designer who harnesses imagination, research and analytics to develop unique and thoughtful designs that make people laugh, feel and connect.
The need to experience new things, explore new places and walk different paths motivated me to leave my midwest roots and journey toward the Evergreen State. I'm always up going the extra mile and getting into something new and exciting. I’ve posed as Santa for an email campaign I created, and even dressed up as Eleven in the waffle aisle of the grocery store, all in the name of good work and a hearty laugh. I believe in working hard, but making sure to have fun while doing it. 
I’m also proud of my latest endeavor – designing fun and cheerful enamel pins that are meant to lift up.
It’s a passion project born from a need to express ideas and creativity in a fun, chuckle-worthy sort of way and
has turned into a growing side business that keeps me smiling.
I’m a huge fan of exciting new projects and would love to hear about yours - preferably over a nice, cold IPA or a hot plate of chicken and waffles. But an email works, too.
